No one is gonna like this, I say if you got away with it just move on and forget about it,ONLY if it wasn't extremely horrible. Or you can fess up and deal with the consequences of your actions. Can you hint to what you did?

No. It usually backfires. And if the news will hurt the other person than "ignorance is bliss." The damage of truth might be irreversible. Ask yourself.. are you trying to relieve your guilt by coming clean? If it's a yes...then perhaps it might be a selfish move because you'll feel better, and they won't. Truth is important, but not telling...isn't always a lie either.
When we do bad things and consistently get away with it, it will always push us to go a little farther the next time around. Learning to be honest and deal with the consequences encourages us to keep our noses clean in the future.
In all honesty as a person you aren't lying until you are caught. Now I know some may disagree with this, but as a person who lies a lot (sadly) you get caught around 6% of the time. And if you get caught suck up to them with an I didn't want to hurt your feelings stuff
Wow, some of the answers for this question make me think that our corrupt politicians and criminal corporate leaders really do represent the common way of thinking! And that's a sad thing indeed. I think you should confess, apologize and ask forgiveness. For one thing, if what you did hurt someone else, that person deserves an apology. For another, this will continue to bother you until you do something about it. And for another, you'll be setting a good and high example for others to follow.
Well it's up to you. What kind if person do you want to be? If you gave no problem having a low moral compass, fine. Just know that in time those around you will see you for what you are. You may find yourself very alone.
well, if you confess, that will help whoever's thingy you broke, that will regain some trust back into the relationship that you have had with whoever's thingy you broke. I'm not sure if this is going to help you much, but i've been there, done that, i fessed up, and now me and my mom are together with our relationship higher than ever!
Well the fact that you are asking this question shows that you feel bad about whatever it is that you did. It will make you feel better if you confess and offer your sincere apology. Come back and let us know how things go. Good luck!
The best thing to do is confess. It is the hardest thing to do but in the end you will be better off for it. If you don't It will be something you will look back on and regret. I know the way it feels from both sides of the coin.
I would confess. You are speaking of a material object regardless of its worth....what is worth more is self respect and being a person of character. To own up to something is better than saying nothing. I always told both my kids i don't care if they screw up big time, if you come talk to me about it, you will get in less trouble than if i find out myself.
